The James Hamilton you mention as being the husband of Sarah GILASBY may have been the one that had these children, but he is definitely not the son of the James Hamilton who married Elizabeth Bennett. I am descended from Susan Hamilton who married William Washington POSTON. I can tell from the below that this info is most likely from the family history written by Henry Smith Poston and his relatives. Are you descended from him?
Susan Hamilton's father, James, was born in 1759 and fought in the revolution. The source for this is a copy of a letter I have from Susan's daughter, Mittie Poston Brigham and also James' war record. I should note that his war record was accidentally intertwined with another James Hamilton of the area, but if one looks carefully at each page, it is fairly easy to pull out the documents that pertain to this one vs. the other James Hamilton who came from Pennsylvania.
I would be interested in learning more about your relationshp to these Hamiltons.
